Right now, President Obama is asking you to think about what $2,000 a year means to you and your family -- because Congress needs to hear it.
The Senate has passed a bill that stops taxes from going up for 98 percent of American families, and asks those who can afford it to pay a little more. If the House follows suit, President Obama is ready to sign it as soon as it hits his desk.
If they fail to do so, a typical middle-class family of four will see their taxes go up by $2,000 in just a few short weeks."
~~~~~~What they are saying is that the Bush tax cuts are keeping everyone from paying $2,000 more in taxes. But, they are spinning it to say Obama is saving us.
“If you tell them that there is no such thing as a pain-free life, they’ll think you are some sadistic fascist who thrives on pain and takes pleasure in hurting people.
The problem with that attitude is that pain is nature’s way to warn us of danger. If it burns, don’t touch it. If it hurts, don’t repeat it. People who are born without an ability to feel pain are incapable of learning safe behaviors and are doomed to live a short life of bumps, burns, broken bones, and worse. A pain-free society would be even less viable.
The real choice, therefore, is between the occasional sharp pain of individual effort and the dull, permanent pain of collective misfortune, since redistributive economies always end in misery, shortages, and corruption. Western Europe’s gradual introduction of socialism is directly proportional to its gradual economic and moral decline, as evidenced by violent riots in response to inevitable austerity measures.
In the U.S., the pain-free life will be even shorter if the country falls off a cliff.
When the painkillers become useless, The Game remedies it by directing the massive anger toward the opposition.”
Barry was against the Bush tax rates before he was for them.
Does the RNC have a clue yet?
I've heard Limbaugh and others say that one of obama's goals is to put a stake in the republican party and put it out of his misery.
I like that idea, if it kills off the GOP and what rises from the ashes does so with attitude and takes it to him and his agenda. Sweet justice that would be!
Speaking of Limbaugh...I wish he could somehow again become the teacher/political analyst he once was. There are very, very few currently being heard in any forum or elected to GovCo who can explain and teach.
We are woefully misundereducated and indoctrinated and no one offers any counter to the One Stream Media chorus, including Limbaugh and Hannity. Too fat and happy and they've lost the edge or they've been muted.
New blood and new talent is needed.
